TCP: Former Marine, Author, Podcaster Stan R. Mitchell

Not gonna lie I was a bit rusty on the production side of the house this week but, we are back on That’s Criminal with John Stamp!

I hope you guys had as much fun as I did over the holiday. December was a blur. Took the wee babes to the Big Island of Hawaii, and just like I did the first time I went there long ago, Red Five and the Big Guy did not want to come back. Three out of the four of us were all in favor of putting up a tent on the beach and never leaving. Thankfully, the brains of the outfit, the lovely wife Erica, talked us back to the mainland.

So, I’m back, had enough fun last year that I decided to talk to a bunch more really interesting people. I got a pretty great lineup both in true crime and fiction coming up so I hope you continue to enjoy the show. I do have an announcement though; the boys picked a new logo. It’ll be in the show notes. And the new cover for the podcast starting next week.

Also, before we get into it, big thanks to all of you who have downloaded Brother’s Keeper on Audible. So far Alex and Charlie have been really well received. And, like he did with Spoilers, Chas Mandala nailed it with the narration.  We both appreciate the support.

 Alright, one more thing, don’t forget, like, subscribe, and rate the TCP and I will send you a free ebook. DM me on IG @thatscriminalpodcast or email,, and I’ll send you either Brother’s Keeper, Shattered Circle, or Wraith of Sheltermount.

Spoilers is coming to Audible. I just finished some last-minute edits. The producer/narrator Chas Mandala has been amazing to work with. He’s so good at bringing Banks and Wilke, Thompson, DeGuello, and of course Biannca and Poppy to life. Look for that on pre-order in the next couple of weeks.

TCP Ep. 20 Bestselling Author James Chandler and his Sam Johnstone Series


As a way of saying thank you for helping me get the TCP off the ground, anyone who likes subscribes, and rates the TCP gets a free e-book. Hit me up by   DM on IG @thatscriminalpodcast or email,, and I’ll send you one of my titles either Brother’s Keeper, Shattered Circle, or Wraith of Sheltermount.

Tonight I get to talk to bestselling author of the Sam Johnstone Series James Chandler.

James Chandler spent his formative years in the western United States. When he wasn’t catching fish or footballs, he was roaming centerfield and trying to hit a breaking ball.

After a college baseball career, he exchanged jersey No. 7 for camouflage issued by the United States Army, which he wore around the globe and with great pride for twenty years before retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel of Air Defense Artillery.

He earned his Juris Doctor by attending night school at the George Mason University School of Law while assigned to the Pentagon and practiced law in Wyoming for twelve years before his appointment to the bench.

 When he isn’t working or writing, he’ll likely have a fly rod, shotgun or rifle in hand.

His Sam Johnstone series includes: Misjudged, One and Done, False Evidence, and Capital Justice.

James is a master of the legal thriller. We talk process, his background with the US Army, and his life as a judge. A great interview.

As always thank you for your continued support for Blood Red Ivory, available in e-book, paperback, and audiobook everywhere.

Thank you to Crush Limbo for the music.

Like I mentioned I’ll be at Books at the Beach September, 8th to the 10th. Tickets still available.
